Crystal River house description

Visit Florida's Nature Coast in our quiet and peaceful vacation home. This home is featured on an oversized corner lot approximately 3/4 acre. The lot is fenced and full of shade trees. We are situated on a freshwater canal approximately 50 yards from Kings Bay and offer a boatslip and a long 60 ft seawall to accomodate your boat. The home is a two bedroom, one bath home with an additional Queen sleeper sofa. It comfortably accomodates 6 people. Aside from the spacious and open tiled living/dining area, we have an enclosed Florida room, a screened in patio, and a screened lanai with a private pool. We offer cable t.v., wireless internet, and have a dvd/vcr and stereo system installed for your use.

Our visitors enjoy the tranquility that our home offers. It is very common to see manatees slowly making their way through our canal along with an occasional dolphin or otter sighting!! There are several species of birds that come to feed in our yard that can be viewed through our comfortable Florida room and back screened patio. This home is located near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood.

We have plenty of room to park your vehicles and boat trailers in the long driveway or in the yard. There is also a covered carport for your vehicle.

We do offer a canoe and 2 kayaks here at the home at no additional cost to you. We have two single seater (sit in) kayaks that are about 6 and 8 feet. There are also paddles and life jackets here for you. We have a crabtrap in the back you can use as there are several blue crabs in the canal. There is also a fish cleaning table in the back in front of the boatslip.

The home comes completely stocked with kitchen utensils, cookware, bed linens, towels and washcloths, soap and cleaning materials. There is a full washer/dryer here for your use and we keep you stocked with laundry detergent. All you need to bring are your personal toiletries and food!!

There is a county boat ramp with rest rooms and picnic area about 4 miles down Fort Island Trail. Fort Island Gulf Beach is 6 miles away on Ft. Island trail.

The area is perfect for swimming with the manatees and swimming in nearby springs. 3 Sisters and main spring are within paddling distance.

Please feel free to ask us any additional questions you may have regarding our home or the area. We do offer military and police discounts. Our home is open all year long for rental. Thank you and we hope to hear from you!
